The format is simple. We list our favorite weapon, vehicle, and map, and explain why each is our favorite.
With .62 in the near future, it might be interesting to see how opinions change with the new format/features.. :) Weapon: K98 - I like it because it is reliable, steady and accurate. The rate of fire is excellent for a rifle, and the bullets have immense stoppign power. Map: Berlin Outskirts - Very intense action. The map design is impeccable, the defenses and trenches obviously designed with gameplay in mind. I love this map on the German side - there's no feeling quite like sitting in an 88, waiting for the first Russian tanks to break the horizon, Katyushka rockets blazing overhead. Vehicle: Stuka w/ 1000kg bomb. There's nothing more fun than diving in on a couple of enemy tanks moving in tight ranks, siren wailing, release the bomb, flip into chase-cam and BOOOM!!! No more tanks. :naughty:
Weapon: Lee enfield no 4- Best bolt action of the war imho :D. Good clip size, good RoF for a bolt action rifle and impeccable accuracy and stopping power.
Map: Arnhem- It has to be...The greatest town map i have ever played on in BF 1942. Action is non stop, teamwork is going on all the time and that howitzer is just so much fun :D.
Vehicle: Tiger- Although i'm usually just plain infantry, nothing quite compares to hearing the tell tale sounds of a tiger and shouting 'take cover!' as this slow mighty beast rolls around the corner; magic. Fun to drive too.
weapon: m1 garrand - this weapon is semi auto and has good range and stopping power and since its semi auto if you dont kill with the first shot you will with the second.Can also be used to suppress mg's in bunkers with the constant fire
map: Breakthrough - This map has it all in 0.61 with massive tank battles, street fighting, house to house combat, long range rifle shooting, dogfighting and of course in 0.62 it will have paratroopers in it! The map is the El Alemien of Europe and an excellent all round map with many cool features such as the me 262 or the scoped stg 44.
Vehicle: SAS jeep - Maybe an odd choice compared to the king tiger etc but this is one mean fighting machine.It serves as transport for 4 with a 30 cal and a twin lewis gun this can suppress infantry and escape the heat of battle easily, not to mention how cool the model is!
Weapon: Carbine. Solid feel, good in short- to medium- distances. I also like the sound :)
Map: Iwo Jima- it was one of my favs to begin with in Vanilla, but what the FH team have done to it has made it even better. I especially love the large Vehicle transport barge!
Vehicle: T34-76- fast, accurate, and an all-around good tank. Takes care of those PIV's with ease.
Mosin Nagant -feels like the best rifle ingame Arnhem -most action vehicle- Panzer IVH I think... best compromise of armor/firepower
Weapon: Mosin-Nagant. Great sound, great model, great gun overall. Runner up: No. 4.
Map: Gold Beach. Looks simply outstanding, has good gameplay (although brits could use another churhill in the start), has a nice mix of infantry and vehicle warfare. Runners up: Breakthrough, Valirisk.
Vehicle: Well, Tiger I guess for, obvious reasons. Otherwise Kingtiger, but I've only got to use it like three times. But my real favorite would be StuGIIIG, if it had the real tank sight. Unfortunately it does not yet have one, so, in .61, its prolly my 3rd favorite due to lack of tank sight. Hopefully it'll be my favorite in .62...
map: omaha beach 1944
vehicle: KT and IS2
Weapon-Mosin, y cause evryone know how i luv my mosin pwnage Map-Fall Weiss or Arnhem, cause Fall Weiss is sexy and Arnhem is my pwnage map Vehicle-ummm....I gotta love the american AA tank on Alpenfestung but I love the Firefly, yup the Firefly
Best Map : Bulge for sure, just give some more tickets to the axis and they will acctually win some rounds but its great fun on both sides.
Best Weapon : Enfield with Rifle Nade, balanced weapon and a skilled user can do quite some damage.
Best Vehicle : T34-85, the pwn. Fast, great gun, great armor. A smart guy in it can smoke Tigers and even King tigers with it.
fav map: Valirsk, massive tank battle and i love the recaptured german version of the T34/85 on that map. Fav weapon: M1 carbine. medium weapon. little bit of close range and a little bit of long range so its right there in the middle. nice size clip also. for russian team:mosin nagant Fav vehicle: T34-85. accurate gun. good armour. and as i mentioned before the recaptured german skin is very cool.
